missing a meeting may not seem like a very big deal to you, but it is a big deal for me. i don't just miss meetings because i forget. i plan my life a year in advance. i put in for my time off in january for the remainder of the year (with the exception of sickness and surprise events) and i have not missed a meeting because "i forgot" in a very long time!
here is what i told my boss: monday when i checked the schedule i saw that i was not working my home unit, so i was focused on remembering to come into work at a different time due to being on a different unit.
here is the reality: i didn't even think to look at my calendar and see if there were any meetings this week. andi turned three on monday. andy turns 30 on friday. i'm beginning to come out of my 'depression' that i had been blogging about (i'm not sure i'm really coming out of it, but i am definitely feeling a bit better...better than i've felt in two months at least!) and i still have great difficulty remembering things. i'm really hoping that this memory loss is due to grief and not some sort of dementia. anyway, my marriage has been going through the rapids and my kids have not been on the best of behavior. lots of doctor stuff and school stuff (michael starts kindergarten in the fall). so, i have a lot on my mind and the one thing not on my mind was the meeting for work today that we have every month on the second wednesday!
i'm very frustrated with myself for forgetting this meeting! i'm very frustrated with my work as when i got here today i found out that i was on my home unit, then i found out that i missed the meeting. i just wasn't prepared for work today.
